내가 만들어내는 생명체들은 내 안에서 이는 강렬한 감정과 셀 수 없는 말들로 이루어진 생각들 너머로 태어난다. 그들은 내가 이야기 할 수 있는 사람들과 같고, 마치 나를 위해 존재하는 것 같기도 하다.

나는 이 세상에 태어나 살아가면서, 변화하는 시대와 사람들 속에서 기뻐하고, 애쓰며, 슬퍼한다.

세상을 알면 알수록 무력감을 느낀다. 하지만 어떤 상황에서도 사람들이 생명력을 잃지 않을 때 내 마음은 용기와 희망으로 가득 찬다.
이런 모순적 감각들이 만들어내는 <마찰>이 내가 그림을 그리는 동기다.

작가 노트 2021


They (the strange creatures I draw) are born beyond the thoughts that consist of strong emotions and countless words that arise inside of me.
They are like people I can talk to, like they are just there for me.
I am living in this world, rejoicing, struggling, and sorrowing among the changing times and people.
The more I get to know things in the world, the more often I feel helpless. But, when I discover that human beings have that essential vitality that will never be lost under any circumstances, my heart fills with courage and hope.
The « friction » caused by this contradictory sensation is my motivation to draw.
